Trust me, I really, really wish I was wrong and just spouting random nonsense.
: Just going to leave this here for the memories
I liked the old Varus, and I'll miss him. A lot of champs in League feel like they're ripped out of a sandbox game; they're just kind of... there, existing. They don't have any real end goals or motivations on a grander scale, and just live their lives. Varus had a story going on, he had real goals and motives, and took the steps to go and meet them. His life ended, and he took in this power that would one day corrupt him in the hopes that he could finish what he needed to do before then. Now we just have an SJW token champion who has no real meaning or purpose, no depth, or anything really. His only purpose is to be a banner that Riot can wave around to show they support the whole LGBTQASDKJGASDLKWhatever garbage -- probably in order to make more money.

The only reason I ever started playing League is not because League is a good game, but because every other game I enjoyed had turned to shit or died off. It was my last resort, since the base game is enjoyable. I've been playing a lot less lately though, since I have FFXIV now, and I got back into WoW, Overwatch and a few other games.
: Battlerite
I play it with my brother and his friends, and it's actually really fun. Unlike League, it's entirely about how good or bad you are, since every champ can beat every champ, and there's no items or anything like that. There is depth, in the form of team compositions, strategies, loadouts (think of it like champion-specific masteries), and so on. The only things you can buy with money are skins and champs, and it doesn't take a ridiculous amount of time to get a champ -- you can probably get one of the expensive ones after a day's worth of playing if you no lifed the game for a while. And it's picking up steam it looks like, the community is fine and I see a lot of new people.

: Anyone here good with knives?
Go to Value Village or Good Will or something, and buy really old knives. My parents have a knife set from their wedding almost 30 years ago, and they're still the best knives in the house, even though we bought a new set a couple years ago. Modern things are just built to go bad.

: I see you everywhere and every post you make is negative like/dislike lol
Yeah, that's what happens when you both talk the truth and say anything that doesn't line up with the flock most sheeple live in.
: Honestly, I've never encountered this problem. I can't tell you how many times my DM has to say, "Guys, shut the fuck up, something important is happening". So I'm gonna break this into two sections, questions about your friends/campaign, and suggestions for what you brought up in your OP. Questions: 1. How many of you are there? If it's you + 5 party members, during combat, assuming each turn takes a minute, that's at a minimum 6 (even more depending on enemies/npcs) minutes between each individual turn. 2. What time are you playing, and what do the player's schedules look like? There are times when my group just has a few disinterested people because they just polished off an 8 hour shift. They might be tired, not bored. 3. Is your campaign combat focused? Story Focused? Healthy mix? Your barbarian might like the constant slog of combat, but your face bard (face is slang for someone who is the speech checker) might be bored as hell after he fires off a vicious mockery, misses, and then does nothing for 6+ minutes. 4. Are you splitting the party for too long? It's sometimes necessary, but if there's 2 or more groups, each group has to wait a turn doing something, and that can be a loooong time. Suggestions on what you brought up: Narrating is good, but don't Tolkien it. If your group steps into a crowded ballroom, set the scene by describing the size of the room, how crowded it is, how everyone is dressed, how they treat your group (if they're dressed as scruffy murder hobos they're gonna draw some side eye and get a wide berth), and general level of opulence along with important objects/npcs of note (assuming they don't need a perception check). As a general rule if it takes more than a minute to describe your surroundings you've gone too far, but elaborate when the players ask for it. As for fighting, yeah a lot of it is trading hits. Don't be afraid of speeding things along if your group are just beating the shit out of something with little returning fire, whaling away at a meat sack isn't exciting. Add things to keep them on their toes, loud fighting might call the attention of enemy patrols, the bandit leader might crush a potion of shrinking on the barbarian, etc. Lastly, you don't have to pull out the map and figures for every fight. Basic slugger combat can be carried out with just a turn order and keeping track of which mob is getting hit. And most important advice: Talk to your group. They'd know better than us if you're doing something wrong.

Usually like 7PM - 11PMish. They don't have busy schedules since it's a mix of college and high school kids. > 3. Is your campaign combat focused? Story Focused? Healthy mix? I'd like to say it's a healthy mix. The combat is usually more open-ended than just killing things, I think I'm bad at narrating the fights though. > 4. Are you splitting the party for too long? The party hasn't split yet. > And most important advice: Talk to your group. They'd know better than us if you're doing something wrong. Well, they say I'm really good at DMing. But whenever I look around, they look kind of bored. Maybe they're just really into it, since I like a lot of story, but I feel like they're bored, looking at their expressions. When the other guy DMs, they're all laughing and screwing around.

Camille was nerfed because she was the strongest toplaner, bar none, for a good portion of the season. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jl01hLeyQaU https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I-qgA1Vg588 LS, a Korean analyst, could accurately predict the pick/ban phases of most of those games because a few champions were so ungodly broken relative to everything else that you had to get them ASAP. Camille was almost always banned during that time period and was accepted to be THE STRONGEST champion in the game, being played in 4 different roles with success. But I guess the Koreans should've read your Mobafire guide on Camille counterplay. xd Also, I talked a lot about skill being a fluid concept before. It doesn't matter how bad you think Diamonds are because (excusing Diamond 5 since it's a hotbed of boosting) they're still overall significantly better than you. You can say, "Wow I cs'd better than that Zed I'm clearly a better player his rank means nothing." But maybe he doesn't play Zed. Maybe he's lagging. Maybe he's a poor cs'er but his roam and splitpush are pristine. You're so quick to dismiss what you clearly don't understand. These players get the game at a way better level than most people comprehend, and if they wanna ban Zoe then fuck it I'll help 'em out.
Camille was nerfed because lazy fucks can't be bothered to learn to read telegraphs and ACTUALLY COUNTERPLAY HER ABILITIES. No, they just want to bruteforce through her kit, or statcheck her. If a lowly gold noob like me can learn how to beat her, then a challenger should be able to do so too.

Now, I've never once lost lane to a Zoe, and every game that HAD a Zoe in it (where it wasn't me), she was like 0/10. So... if she was as broken as people cry about her being, you'd think that wouldn't be the case, huh? And she also wouldn't have a 44% winrate. First, no she doesn't. https://www.leagueofgraphs.com/champions/stats/zoe/diamond This site is much more accurate than whatever the hell you're probably using. https://lolalytics.com/ranked/worldwide/platinum/plus/champion/Zoe/ Lolalytics is also a good site and it puts her over 46%, which for a champion that just came out is actually pretty fucking impressive. That being sad, as much as the elo range has shortened in the past so many years, it's still fucking massive. D2 and above finds her to be absolutely abusive and even in (slightly) lower MMRs she's been seen to be an obnoxious threat. She's pushing a 75% banrate according to that first site for a reason. She can fish for kills very easily and then her team can follow up with no effort because the target she CC's is marked for them before they go in on said target. If they can't, she can often go in and kill them herself. It's annoying at best and cancerous at worst. Now, let's ask a philosophy question. If Zoe is easy to deal with, and everyone who can't is incompetent, but Diamonds refuse to see her in 3/4ths of their games, are they all incompetent players or are you just full of shit?
If you constantly ban something, how will you ever get better at playing against it? Like, when Camille came out, I wrote a fucking guide on how to beat her, after having spammed the fuck out of her and getting 70k mastery points and rank 7. Wanna know how many people listened? None. So Riot ends up nerfing her so much that she is never played anymore because she's not competitive. So, yeah, they're just bad players. Lot of diamonds are.

: Reason I ban her every match I'm in.
Oh yeah, I permaban her. But I don't get to play Zoe in draft pick (I tried to play her for like 30 games, and got her twice), so I've been doing blinds until I get at least rank 5 on her... oh boy do I remember why I permaban fucking Akali.
: > I play Nidalee. No, you actually dont.

KEK Nidalee's burst is reliant on landing a spear, then diving into the enemy. That is a drastic difference than chunking people for 1/2 their HP from insane range with one hit. I'm very sorry you're having trouble seeing the difference
Well, I **do** play Nid, and I fucking mained her when I started in season 5. Zoe and Nid are ***NOTHING*** alike. You wouldn't even *see* Nid as she hucked spears out of nowhere, where Zoe's combo is VERY telegraphed and obvious - to the point that if you get hit by it you have some kind of mental issue. And Nid absolutely can one shot without her spear these days.

Riot has already admitted to overbuffing champions until they're strong/overpowered so that people start to play that champion more and maybe gain them some dedicated mains. That's no surprise with Ornn, Poppy, or Taliyah, all of whom started off weak and/or clunky. If you're referring to Galio's recent AP buffs, that was a mistake that literally nobody asked for so idk what you mean "popular opinion and appeasing the whales." And idk maybe you win against most Zoes because you're high Silver/low Gold and you're playing against high Silver/low Gold Zoes? There's a huge difference between people who play her properly and those who don't and since there isn't a lot of content yet explaining the most efficient way to play Zoe it's unsurprising low elos haven't fully figured it out yet.

Better not let it be publicly known you agree with me.

She's far too strong as a catcher in the mid-late game and her early game can be brutish, especially if she gets a Gunblade or Protobelt from her bubbles.
Oh I'm expecting her to be nerfed to appease the fucking morons and whales.

And would you recommend the Switch? Was debating getting it, but the small amount of games just doesn't seem like it'd be worth it. Ooooh, I'll try not to rant too long. :P I'll start with Odyssey, since I can say more positive things about it: So, it's a Mario game through and through. It feels and plays like all the old school 3D games (SM64 and SMSS) and I love that about it. The level design feels a bit like SMG and Yoshi's Island combined, which is fantastic, and the gameplay design of everything is nice too... but at the same time the game has a lot of weak points to it that bother gamers who wouldn't necessarily call themselves casual. The game is fun, don't get me wrong, but it's so painfully, horribly easy and short that there isn't a whole lot of content for people who aren't completionists. It'll take you a while to get every single power moon available, but if you're just playing through the game, you'll be done within a few hours and you'll have not died once. One of the *goals* for Odyssey was for casual players to see the "Game Over" screen as little as possible (as opposed to something like SM64 or SMSS where you saw that a lot), and that ideal just kind of made the game feel really watered down. I'd absolutely recommend Odyssey, since it was a good game and I enjoyed it while it lasted, but I gotta warn you to not expect too much from it, since it takes "casual" to a whole new absurd level. Now, Zelda... Oooohhh where do I begin. So, I'm just goinna start off by saying it's not a Zelda game by any means. It doesn't feel, play, sound or even look like a Zelda game. Nintendo said that they wanted to "pay homage to Zelda's roots," and I suppose they did do just that, but the original Zelda really wasn't that great (and BotW is even more simplified). The very next game, we added more solid progression and a bit of story to everything, though the gameplay was weird, and it wasn't well-recieved. Then comes LTTP, one of the highest rated Zelda games (along with OOT and TP). This game set the formula for every other top-down Zelda game from then on, and it is widely regarded as one of the best video games ever (it's a close fight between LTTP and OOT). Now, what was it about OOT and LTTP that made them so great? * Solid progression * Incredibly deep story that builds upon itself every game * Gameplay that never really got stale and the game kept changing things up on you * Wide, open world that felt full of life * Amazing soundtracks * Fun boss concepts (and as old as they are, they still beat a lot of newer bosses in terms of fun) * Memorable characters and events * Sometimes challenging dungeons So... why do I hate BotW so much? Well, it has none of that. * The story was axed in favor of the game being a sandbox * There is no progression once you get off the plateau (as in, you don't unlock items that open up new areas to explore and all that) * The gameplay is very static and repetitive, even on bosses * As a side note, the gameplay is not "Zelda" -- it plays like a watered down Skyrim with a Zelda skin tacked onto it * While the world is enormous and open, it doesn't feel alive. You find Moblin camps around, and the occasional horse village, but the world has no personality or flavor like other Zelda games. * The soundtrack is largely forgettable. Lot of quiet piano sounds that might or might not be a song? I can't tell while playing the game. * The bosses are all the same thing (I won't spoil it) with a gimmick pegged onto it. * The characters are just... boring. I remember like 5-6 of them, and that's it. Whereas I could talk for hours about just the characters in something like Minish Cap which is a smaller game. * Not once did I ever feel challenged in BotW, and never once was I just scratching my head wondering what to do like I did as a kid playing OOT. It's just not a Zelda game. It has none of the features that make Zelda what it is, and it just feels like a watered down, barebones Skyrim clone with a Zelda skin on it. If that's your kind of thing, then more power to ya. But I can't think of it as Zelda. So, I didn't really like it, and I wouldn't recommend it based on a lot of things... but I would still say to at least try it, since it was enjoyable on its own merits for a little while (the tutorial area is the most fun I had in the game, weirdly enough). But it gets boring really quickly, and it doesn't have that same sense of satisfaction or exploration that other Zelda games do. As far as the Switch in general, I'd ***absolutely*** recommend it. I can't tell you how much I love being able to just grab it and go, unlike the PS4 or XB1 which are tied to the TV. I have all my games with me between my 3DS and my Switch, and I can just download them all to an SD card instead of having a mountain of cartridges (don't lick them by the way, even though it's a meme). Plus, there are a TON of indie / third party games that are on it, like Shovel Knight, Binding of Isaac, Skyrim (if you like it), Shantae, Rayman and so on. Plus, some other Nintendo games were actually done really well, like Splatoon and Mario + Rabbids (I didn't expect this one to be good, but it's fun).

I'm the biggest Nintendo nerd you'll ever find -- especially Zelda (my name is the Italian variation of Ciela (the fairy from Phantom Hourglass)). ^^ Plus I did a bit of intern work at Nintendo over summer a few years ago, and I know a little about how they work, so. :P
: Why is it Legend of Zelda?
In Zelda games, a lot of what happens is -because- of Zelda, and it's up to Link to go fix everything. She's a descendant of Hylia (previously just the goddesses, but SS gave her a name), and Ganondorf wants her power to become immortal / all powerful / whatever his motive is at the time. So, while Link is the main character and the window through which we play the game, he's not the driving force behind everything like Zelda is. In Mario games, Mario is the driving force behind a lot of it all. Bowser gets jealous of Mario, kidnaps Peach, then Mario goes and kicks his ass and makes him salty and all that. In Metroid games, the driving force? You guessed it, the Metroids.

: i just told you she has a bad late game....... that's a situation where you can win against her depending on what champion you play, you can also win against her in the mid and even early game. as i said, you can't 1v1 anyone in this game at any time you want. there are POWER SPIKES IN THIS GAME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! either based on level or on items also, I'm glad i've "spewed" bullshit: http://leagueoflegends.wikia.com/wiki/Akali Twilight Shroud TARGET RANGE: 270 EFFECT RADIUS: 475 COST: 60 / 55 / 50 / 45 / 40 ENERGY COOLDOWN: 18 while your 5 seconds invisibility claim is a solid fact ps: kayn isn't broken, ww isn't broken........... and i don't even main those
... in what fucking world is her late game weak? Every late game Akali I see she's having a field day one shotting everyone except the tank -- and the tank only lives through two rotations at best.
: she has an ok early game, a good mid game and a bad late game this is the definition of balance she is 100% team reliant to win games. While you can definitely carry in the mid game, your team has to group and get objectives or you will start to fall off. she has high damage, but also dies quite easily she is very punishing if you make mistakes, example: master tier akali vs diamond 5 singed: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4_zxvHBEChc her invisibility has 18s cooldown at rank1, and its the last skill she maxed. With about 8 seconds uptime. Which means, more like a 10-8 seconds instead of 5. No, not all champions can just be CCed and they are dead. Examples: tanks, bruisers, rengar. You need to respect her power spike in mid game, that's all............ But, i don't think you know what this means....... I think you believe that you should be able to 1v1 anyone at any point of the game, regardless what champion you play or how feed the enemy is or how farmed they are. Every champion has good points and bad points. They got strenghts and weakness. To defeat them, you must understand their weakness. And not attack their strentgh What most people however think is: akali noob trash champion, only noobs play her, i should be able to crush her whenever i want however i want. If she kills me its because she's op as fuck, there's no way i got outplayed or overstayed. And with that cooky behavior, instead of abusing akali's weaknesses, they fail to do so and attack her when she's strong. Which results in her murdering them, snowballing and sometimes winning, other times losing.

A fair, balanced, healthy game ***WOULD*** mean you can 1v1 any champion as any champion, and potentially win -- assuming neither is absurdly fed or anything. Akali does not have a losing situation or any real counterplay, she just statchecks you. Look at all the more recent champ releases. Even though some are fucking broken like Kayn and WW, they do have counterplay and they can lose even if they're ahead of you. It's down to skill, rather than who has higher stats. Akali does not work like that.
: Being weak and being fair are not the same thing though.
: She isn't. I don't think anyone, not even most Akali players, believe she is.
Akali mains are delusional and think she's weak or just barely scraping by -- and Riot believes them. Same with Talon mains.
: I complain because her E has too short a CD and offers WAY too much zoning because of the area of trap.
But Lux's E and Ori's ball are fine? They're a lot more dangerous too.
LankPants (OCE)
: >And Revolver is 1050 gold. With Future Market, you get that at like 850 gold. That doesn't take long to farm at all. Funny, because the Akali in the game you're whining about went Sorc/Dom, just like every other Akali who goes either Dom/Sorc, Sorc/Dom or sometimes Dom/Prec. Why are you factoring for a rune she literally couldn't have?
Am I complaining about just one game? No. There is a very good fucking reason I permaban Akali. Every single time I see her, she hard carries. But because assholes insist Zoe is "broken" I don't get to play her in draft, and I have to suffer through blind picks.
: Come now, lets be perfectly honest. Her E range is quite a bit over the top when it's thrown over walls.
Yeah, and in order to do anything with those long range Es, she's goinna have to flash and blow her ult and then probably miss since it only lasts 2s... and then she dies since she is entirely immobile and squishy. People are making issues out of things that aren't issues.
Jbels (NA)
: Well, for one, Annie has to flash to get a one shot going. Zoe has it built into her kit. Besides, getting oneshot isn't the problem people have with Zoe, it's how overloaded her E is
So... do you have issue with Lux's Q then? It's a long range CC that empowers her next attack against you, or her ult. Do you have issue with Anivia's Q? It's a long range stun that doubles her E damage on you. Do you have issue with Vel's E? It's a long range CC that basically guarantees you're goinna get chunked for half your health. Do you have issue with Morg's Q? It's a long range CC that just about guarantees your death if she's level 6. I don't see how her E is overloaded. Especially considering she only has two abilities that even do damage, and her E's damage is negligible. Like, imagine taking away Lux's E, so she only had her Q, passive and ult.
Jbels (NA)
: You camp her pre 6. She has literally NOTHING she can do in the game until she hits level 6, and even then, not until she gets her first item. Akali has a piss poor early game, and if you camp the shit out of her and put her behind enough, she won't do anything for the rest of it Edit: Holy fuck, everybody needs to chill on these replies. In what part of this reply to his post did I ever say Akali was fair and balanced? Her kit is fucking toxic. I told him what to do so he can not lose to her next game. I repeat, you all need to chill out.
As soon as she hits 6, no matter how far behind she is, she can instantly turn it around (unless you're like 5/0 and just delete her, then she just comes back late game and hard carries). And Revolver is 1050 gold. With Future Market, you get that at like 850 gold. That doesn't take long to farm at all.

I'd much rather lane against Zoe than Kat, who can point-and-click you to death unless you literally run away every time she starts towards you.
Oh but don't worry! We nerfed Kat's E! She has to land knives to do damage now! ###### Not a lie at all.
: Me neither. She's easy to play against, all her damage is from skillshots and one of them is telegraphed. A good Zoe is a fun challenge, but most Zoes are pretty easy to play against.

: I don't either lol.
I wish I did, so I could make them realize she's not broken. I want to actually play her without the cancer that is blind pick. Spent like 30 games trying to play her, got to play her like three times. : /

It was really fun before it went F2P and died. But it was too hard for a lot of people, so everyone quit. : / Game is still around, but I don't think it has much time left. Could try it if you want to, it's F2P now.

: I know this isn't any comfort to you, but I think your situation is an outlier. Most cases of chat use do not result in punishment. I've even been somewhat negative myself at times over the past month or two and I have not received punishment for it. > _Edit: I finally went back through your post history and found a post of yours where you talked about being punished and you posted your chat logs._ > > https://boards.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/player-behavior-moderation/BL0LGltd-i-like-what-merits-punishments-bans?comment=0004000000000000 > > It seems like you were not punished for nothing after all, but were instead punished for behaving negatively in chat, quite repeatedly in fact. > > Do you think that the chat log in the comment above is not punishment worthy?
Yeah, I type a lot. So do a lot of people. But I still wasn't breaking any rules. I can see a chat restriction as a way to just say shut up (back in the day that's how chat was handled in gaming. You just got muted for a while / indefinitely), but knowing I can actually be permanently banned for that is just ridiculous. Never once did I attack anyone or flame anyone but the game itself. I was arguing with a couple people in those chat logs, but I was never "toxic." And the chat logs of a lot of the people I see posting in player behavior after being banned I also wouldn't call ban worthy. This is a competitive game, and people are going to get upset. To expect everyone to be robots and/or Lux is just... I don't even know a word for it. But then... that's not how you make money. And the SJWs that work at Riot probably love it when they see people get banned for something as silly and benign as chat.
: I mean no offense by this, but I'm skeptical of your claim. It seems unlikely to me that you would be punished for nothing. Perhaps you could provide us with the chat logs from your games when you were punished? Maybe we can help identify what it was that you were punished for.
Go dig through my post history. I deleted that cluster of a thread I made earlier today, so that won't be filling it all up. When I talked to a support agent, they said that it's true I wasn't breaking any rules, but they treat negativity as harshly as they do anything else. And when you consider I've been typing exactly like that for the better part of 3 years (and I used to be worse) with no punishments until the end of S7... makes you wonder. So, obviously, unless you're quoting Lux, using chat is not allowed.
: Not using chat is probably part of your problem, if your teammates don't think you were honorable then they won't give you honor votes. You need to be gaining honor to move up in honor levels. Using chat isn't against the rules. _mis-using_ it is. If you think that simply using chat is enough to get you banned then you are terribly misguided. Whatever is 'normal' chat for you is probably considered unacceptable by Riot. Instead of assuming they are being unfair maybe you should look at what you consider normal and consider what it is about it that Riot/others find not-so-normal.
Oh I get plenty of honors. And Riot tells us what is acceptable and not, it's in the Summoner's Code and ToS. Never broke any of those rules, but I was punished multiple times, so.
: My issue with Zoe is She has AoE on the Q and it near undodgable, ADC's already have a hard enough time why make it worse by having a character with can CONSISTENTLY one shot them and others, I had a 3k HP Sej with Spirit Visage and Banshees and she was still taking 1k damage from the Q, If Zoes Ult was on Higher CD it would require player to prioritise, but currently i feel a Zoe player can just burst who she wants because Hell she can do it again in 5 seconds EDIT: Why should i be punished more then i already am when i use a Summoner spell? If i flash against zoe itll mean jack all, and i still lose my flash which open up plenty of gank opertunities
The AoE on her Q is actually really small. It's like the size of Syndra's Q, maybe a tiny bit bigger. Thing is though, that's her only ability that does damage, and she's already really squishy and immobile, so she needs some way to not just lose every lane. Most mages (even burst mages or combo mages) have a bit of waveclear anyway, so it's not like it's unheard of. And, unless you're standing a mile away from her, Zoe's Q won't do 1k damage to even a squishy. It just doesn't do that much. Max rank the base (as in point blank) damage is like 300, and only gets close to 1,000 at max range with a hefty amount of AP. As far as summoners go... you can still use them, just be smart about how you do. You drop the bubbles directly underneath you when the spell resolves -- so, **say you flash, you drop the bubble at the place you flash to rather than where you were before.** So, if you're flashing away from her, flash somewhere that she can't just pick up the bubble and fuck you over. If you're chasing her, don't flash directly on top of her, but flash to the side (you're an ADC main anyway, so range isn't an issue). Zoe isn't broken, not even slightly. She just actually requires you to think about what you're doing and how to beat her, instead of just overpowering her with brute force (though that works too if you can take the damage) like most other champs. I wish every champ was like that.
: Yup I know a lot of people think "oh better get the tin foil hat!" but I think a lot of this banhammer shit is just a way to get people to either be forced to purchase keys or if they do end up getting perma banned hope they make a new account and rebuy all their old skins (which people do for some reason) all under the guise of "bettering the community". Remember kids all companies care about is the dollar sign!
Hah, I basically invented the tinfoil hat. But, I stopped having any faith in gaming companies a while ago. Even indie devs that pop up usually go bad when they get a taste of the money. Very few stick to what they believe in, and I have crazy respect for those companies that do, but they're far and few between.

This one time, you were ever so slightly pessimistic, and it made someone feel uncomfortable. We don't support that kind of behavior here in California.
: You forgot to mention how IT FUCKING DOUBLES THE DAMAGE OF THE NEXT ATTACK/SPELL THAT HITS YOU
Up to a limit. At the end of a game, it adds a MAX of about 400 damage.
